Lollapalooza 2022 was just as stacked with rap royalty, and included performances from J. Cole, Doja Cat,Lil Baby, Big Sean, YG, Don Toliver, Cordae, Denzel Curry, Coi Leray, Blxst and Maxo Kream, among others.
Last year’s festival also made headlines when Lil Durk suffered a serious face injury during his performance. The OTF leader required a trip to the hospital following an onstage explosion during his set at Lollapalooza on July 30. He announced shortly after the injury that he would be taking a break to focus on his health.
“Due to the incident that happened at Lollapalooza in Chicago on stage, I’ma take a break & focus on my health,” he wrote in the caption. “I finished my performance yesterday for my fans. Appreciate y’all.”
In other Lolla news, Drake previously shut down Lollapalooza Argentina with a monstrous, albeit brief, performance this past weekend, most of which was captured on one lucky fan’s cellular device.
On Sunday (March 19) a video clip surfaced of the Toronto rap star appearing to take a fan’s phone during his Lollapalooza set. The video shows Drake taking the phone, spinning around a few times, before he finally faces the camera once again, and turns his back to reveal an insane crowd behind him.
However, it doesn’t seem like all Drizzy’s fans were happy with the show. Apparently, he cut the live feed of his performance moments before he began, upsetting his loyal fans tuning in.
On Saturday (March 18), according to Tracklist, Drake canceled the broadcast moments before it started and only performed for 40 minutes. According to fans, headline acts usually perform for an average of 90 minutes. Many of Drake’s fans who were either at home or in person at the festival took to Twitter to voice their disdain regarding the ordeal.
